Rock of Horeb smitten
17:1 And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from
the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the
commandment of the LORD, and pitched in Rephidim and [there was]
no water for the people to drink.
17:2 Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said,
Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said to them, Why
chide ya'll with me? wherefore do ya'll tempt the LORD ?
17:3 And the people thirsted there for water ; and the people
murmured against Moses, and said, Wherefore [is] this [that] you
have brought us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and
our cattle with thirst ?
17:4 And Moses cried to the LORD, saying, What shall I do to this people ? they be almost ready to stone me.
17:5 And the LORD said to Moses, Go on before the people,
and take with ya'll of the elders of Israel ; and your rod,
by which you smotest the river, take in your hand, and go.
17:6 Behold, I will stand before ya'll there upon the rock in
Horeb ; and you will strike the rock, and there shall come water
out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the
sight of the elders of Israel.
17:7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and
Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and
because they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or
Battle with Amalek
17:8 Then came Amalek, and fought with
Israel in Rephidim.
17:9 And Moses said to Joshua, Choose us out men, and go
out, fight with Amalek tomorrow I will stand on the top of the
hill with the rod of God in mine hand.
17:10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with
Amalek and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.
17:11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that
Israel prevailed and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
17:12 But Moses' hands [were] heavy ; and they took a stone,
and put [it] under him, and he sat thereon ; and Aaron and Hur
stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on
the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of
17:13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the
edge of the sword.
17:14 And the LORD said to Moses, Write this [for] a
memorial in a book, and rehearse [it] in the ears of Joshua for I
will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.
17:15 And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it
17:16 For he said, Because the LORD has sworn [that] the
LORD [will have] war with Amalek from generation to generation.
